    Besides the fact that Overstock, Chase and Revenue are sponsors and also nominees (Gee I wonder if they'll win , you also gotta love the finalists that are programs managed by employees or even the LS consultants.

    I wonder who'll win ... I'm really waiting with baited breath
    Continued Success,

    Geez it's like the Academy Awards!

    The movies I have no intention of seeing... win

    And the ones that I see over and over... aren't even nominated.

    Obviously, I don't know what I'm doing!

    Some of that is very scary. Maybe vested interests and short memories are more common than we can imagine. My opinion doesn't count for anything but personally, I'll pass on this one and stop trying to quell growing cynicism.

    For some reason the phrase "Tammany Hall" keeps drifting into my mind, guess I'll have to dig around and see what's being dug up out of my subconscious.

    Now that does makes me feel better.

    Long buried memories of NYC political history are starting to come back. I'd venture to say that Carmine deSapio was a man before his time. He would have done marvelously well in affiliate marketing.

    Does anyone besides me see the irony in Linkshare giving Kellie an award for chasing down the very same shitheads that operate in their network and that they actually push on their merchants?

    Congrats Kellie, you deserve huge recognition. I just see it very ironic that it comes from the enabler of those you spend your day tracking down.

    What else would you expect from LS? Appeasing yet still greasing.
    Continued Success,

    I hate it when LS uses the word "innovative." It's their favorite euphemism.

    Congrats to LinkShare for fooling merchants so very well. Sales reports are powerful blinders.

    Thanks to all who have sent me their sincere congrats. Many have contacted me privately and it's been a both overwhelming and humbling. The support I've gotten from so many is appreciated more than I could ever express.

    A special thanks to Angel for officially representing me at the ceremony. You're the best, even if you did make me text message a whole speech. I'm still in digital shock on that one.

    Back to work for me...I have to be sure to live up to recognition now.

    I would like to say congratulations to the ABW winners as well.

    Kellie, I can't begin to thank you for the work you do. Your blog and your site overall are priceless. I definitely would recommend every AM - new or seasoned - read it throughly. I especially appreciate the video tutorials on loyaltyware. It's one thing to explain how it happens, but I totally mind-blowing experience to see it with one's own eyes.

    Your award was very well deserved.

    I had the same thought. Would have loved to hear their conversation about that

    Congrats Kellie on a well deserved award!!
